    Carbon powder coating in the GTA

    Anyone have some recommendations for a reputable powder coater in the GTA who can strip and repaint/powder coat a carbon frame.

    Time to freshen up the current steed and I'd rather not ship it to the U.S.

    Is that even possible? Powder coating is an electrostatic process, would have expected it to need a conductive material. Then it is baked at around 400 F for a few minutes. Doesn't sound like a good thing to do to a carbon frame.

    Googling around shows it might be able to be done but almost all don't recommend it.

    Traditionally the frame would have to be magnetically charged to attract the paint. Maybe there's a different process.

    I've heard of wood undergoing something similar and baked in a UV oven or something so it wouldn't burn.

    Stripping a carbon frame must be quite the process too.

    I can't help with your question but tagging this for interest.
